Hey all,

 

was having issues with my hard drive so I backed up files via TIME MACHINE then erased and reinstalled OS 10.5 then asked it to transfer back my files using TIME MACHINE. For some odd reason, it transferred my files, but left me with 10.5.6 - having to upgrade all the software again. Took all day then got this message:

WTH?!?!?? It's not like I downloaded bad upgrade software - I used SOFTWARE UPDATE from my computer to download this. Anyone else get this error and what can I do about it?

 

Thanks!

    Hi Rebecca, try another dwnload, Ethernet instead of Airport/Wifi if possible.

     

    "Try Disk Utility

     

    1. Insert the Mac OS X Install disc, then restart the computer while holding the C key.

    2. When your computer finishes starting up from the disc, choose Disk Utility from the Installer menu at the top of the screen. (In Mac OS X 10.4 or later, you must select your language first.)

    Important: Do not click Continue in the first screen of the Installer. If you do, you must restart from the disc again to access Disk Utility.

    3. Click the First Aid tab.

    4. Select your Mac OS X volume.

    5. Click Repair. Disk Utility checks and repairs the disk."

    Then try a Safe Boot, (holding Shift key down at bootup), run Disk Utility in Applications>Utilities, then highlight your drive, click on Repair Permissions, reboot when it completes.

     

    (Safe boot may stay on the gray radian for a long time, let it go, it's trying to repair the Hard Drive.)

    I seem to get more bad downloads when takkes longer.

     

    Open Network Utility in Applications>Utilities>Info tab, select Ethernet & what is the Link Speed & are there any Errors/Collisions on the right?

    OK, try en0, fw0 is Firewre.

     

    Likely upside down because you used iPhoto to rotate it, which it really doesn't, just tags it to dislplay 180° if the other end understands that tag.
